Established in 1985, under the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, Nazrul Institute plays a pivotal role in protecting the literary legacy of the National Poet. The Institute boasts an auditorium, and a rich library as well as other resources including audio records, journals, books on Nazrul Sangeet Swaralipi, and other memorabilia. The organisation offers country-wide annual conventions, workshops, musical events, commemorating events marking the Poet's birth and death anniversaries, training Nazrul artistes, and accommodates research. Each year the Institute honours Nazrul Sangeet singer and researcher with the Nazrul Padak. The Institute is an authentic hub for singers practising Nazrul Sangeet and researchers to conduct life and works of Kazi Nazrul Islam.
